First of, anyone got any tips on potraying the psychology of rapidly growing up?7/26/2012 #1
I don't know if my experience will help. In Twilight, the character Renesmee is half vampire, half human. She matures rapidly, from infant to toddler, and in canon she's fully mature in eight years. (I guess Meyer didn't want Bella and Edward to have to change diapers and potty train) In a story I wrote, she was already fully grown, and married with kids of her own. But even though she was physically mature, I only treated her like a very mature adolescent in terms of her emotional development and experience.
Part of growing up fast, meant she missed a lot of things other kids experienced and learned. Sure she was super tough and fast, but she had a lot of lessons yet to learn. When her child got sick, she panicked and had no idea how to deal with it or who to call. She still liked to watch Disney movies. She still had an impulse to play. She still made some unreasonable demands on her family, and behaved like an adult brat. She was missing some of the wisdom that comes with a slower aging process. She didn't understand death; she had a childlike belief that her dad would come back to life if she just believed enough. (This is my dead Ed story.)7/26/2012 #2
So, ways a kid could be cute yet evil and predatory at the same time? The premise is the son of Sil from the end of the film surviving. His name is Charlie. And what could be symptoms of a hybrid boy about to cocoon? Aside from hunger.
And anyone have any suggestions for differences male hybrids?7/27/2012 . Edited 7/27/2012 #3
First of all, this thread needs to be categorized. I suggest 'Writing' for the title.
Secondly, I don't really know the film you're working from, but if it's hunger...I assume the kid eats people or something like that? Is he going to be making a cocoon like a butterfly, or is he building it from outside materials? His behavior will reflect on that.
*shrug* Sorry, I can't really be more helpful without doing research into the fandom.7/27/2012 #4
It might be categorized - I'm not sure. The OP may have failed to include a colon. Ie. Writing: a Species fic versus Writing a Species fic.7/27/2012 #5
Sorry. So anyone's who's seen the film have thoughts on who could be antagonists over than the government?7/27/2012 . Edited 7/27/2012 #6
